Decans are 36 groups of stars that rise in a particular order throughout each earth rotation. These decans were developed in Egypt thousands of years ago. The rising of each decan marked the beginning of a new “decanal hour” of the night for the ancient Egyptians and eventually three decans were assigned to each zodiac sign. Each decan covers ten degrees of the zodiac. Each decan is ruled by different planetary rules which are also correlated with astrological signs.

Here is some information on the 3 Scorpio Decans:

Scorpio Decan 1: October 23 to November 1

The First Decan of Scorpio is also known as the Scorpio Decante and the “Week of Intensity.” The motto of the First Decan of Scorpio is “Intensity.” This double Scorpio Decante ruled by Pluto — this Decan’s secondary ruling Planet — provides an intensified influence that is manifested in strong drives for power and lust. There are deep feelings here, but they are well-hidden. Those governed by this Decan can either be creative or destructive. Luckily, meaningful employment and worthwhile friends can keep these individuals on the right track.

Since those ruled by this First Decan never expect things to be easy, they are rarely surprised or caught off-guard. They possess impressive fortitude to overcome most odds and may even reinvent themselves periodically. Stubborn and persistent, these are individuals who grit their teeth and have a tendency to finish whatever they start. This period is the most forceful and self-willed period of the entire year. Nothing can stop the drive associated with this Decan, whether for bad or good. Usually it is for the good since the nature of those governed here are generally too virile to be selfish. This strong will is also accompanied by will power and a desire to explore the unknown.

There is also a love and appreciation of family and friends associated with this period. An individual who falls under the jurisdiction of this Decante tends to be something of an irresistible force who blends passion with compassion, as well as being blessed with magnetism, insight, ambition and a knack for intimacy. Sheer single-mindedness assures that he or she will be a winner in love and any chosen profession. The feelings here may be complex but are always utterly genuine.

Scorpio Decan 2: November 2 to 11

The Second Decan of Scorpio is also known as the Pisces Decante and the “Week of Depth.” The motto of the Second Decan of Scorpio is “Transmutation.” The influence of Neptune — this Decan’s secondary ruling Planet — may prompt these talented natives to seek an escape courtesy of some form of addiction, such as drugs or gambling for example.

The heart here is very tender and needs careful handling. This is an individual who will search for a soul mate until one is found. However, he or she will need to be very careful in the choice of friends and companions, or suffer the consequences. Medicine and healing arts are perfect for those governed by this Decanate. In addition, it is crucial that they receive unconditional love and have a loyal, loving mate who will reinforce self-esteem.

Although driven, those ruled by this Decante possess a moderating streak of charity and self-sacrifice. They seek job satisfaction above prestige. Arousing and mysterious, empathetic and faith-inspiring, these persons make for exceptional sweethearts and life-partners, which may be due in part to their love of (and indulgence in) sexual fantasies.

Scorpio Decan 3: November 12 to 22

The Third Decan of Scorpio is also known as the Cancer Decante and the “Week of Charm.” The motto of the Third Decan of Scorpio is “Manifestation.” The influence of the Moon — this Decan’s secondary ruling Planet — lends these natives the ability to become exceptional nurturers and financial wizards. Generally speaking, a person governed by this Decante will enjoy a strong and lifelong bond with his or her mother. This is a good thing unless it results in an eventual lesser bond with the chosen mate.

These individuals tend to be somewhat haughty by nature, but are fair-minded and blessed with remarkable energy. Still, they can be unyielding to the extreme. With a tendency to make sure they are right, those ruled by this Third Decan then decide that whatever they do must be on point. Subject in part to the caprices of the ever-changing Moon can create problems here. However, these natives are usually well-liked and harbor a fondness for pleasure and amusement.

These are souls who desire to leave a legacy to loved ones and favorite causes. Money, privacy, loyalty and property are of supreme importance. A skilled keeper of secrets, these individuals will carry mysteries and resentments to their graves. Because they have remarkable memories and sensitive hearts, they will hang on to sorrow for an inordinate length of time.

An aura of enchantment tends to surround those governed by this Decante. They are caring, abiding and more domesticated than other Scorpio natives. Canny, subtle and adaptable, to say nothing of being blessed with stunning powers of concentration, these are persons who can charm their way to wordly success and into the heart of a chosen mate.
